Miramax continues to play nice with digital

John Moe Jun 1, 2011

We told you a while ago about a deal between Miramax and Netflix to bring a bunch of mostly quasi-arty films to the streaming service. Now a similar deal has been struck with Hulu. Subscribers to the fee-based Hulu Plus service will soon get to enjoy Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting, and more. The movies will also rotate through the ad-supported free version of Hulu.

By the way, I watched a DVD the other night after months of streaming only. I could not believe what a pain in the neck it was! Trailers and ads you can’t skip past, FBI warnings, smudges on the disc that shut down the whole thing. I realize how entitled I sound but my word, physical media for movies can not die soon enough in my book.
